Um...er...haven't these reviews missed Tommy's last record? And his best of the year too? (IMO of course)

I refer to the much recorded "Looped" of which Tommy had not only the best version (again IMO) but one that floored a pretty good early Bill Haley number in the 1952 Battle and only lost (narrowly) to a Fats classic

Come now it's not up to "Looped" standard but it ain't down in the 3/10 dumps either

A middlin' 6 for me

Yes, a 3 is ridiculous. Definitely 5-6 territory. I just emailed Samp and said "What happened to "Looped" from back in August or September?"

Let's see if he adds it before he starts with 1953.
